      If you don’t think about it too much, this is a good book. I raced through it.I am a big fan of Jewel’s writing. She does angst very well and sex even better than that and this book has both those in spades. The book also feels very historically apt and the writing is fluent and lyrical. I like a reunited lovers plot, particularly where the two don’t hate one another and this one was done well. I completely bought the tension between them, sexual and otherwise. But, actually, when I sat ba [...]

      A wonderful romance about a love thought gone! Portia and Viscount Northwood shared a brief, passionate affair ten years ago and the ramifications are still being felt today. It caused deep heartache for Portia and Northwood and also her brother. But with Portia set to wed a dull man just to escape her maddening sister in law, Northwood can not let his feelings be disregarded any longer. A wonderfully rounded romance dealing with the difficulties of a second chance romance and great supporting c [...]

      3.5 stars. I haven't read any other books by this author, so I don't have anything to compare this too. The secondary characters didn't lend much to the story but annoyance (our heroine has some very oblivious relations), and being a novella you don't get enough background to understand why Portia allows the browbeating. Crispin seemed like a good enough fellow; caring, confused, working through past hurts, all of that. The end was abrupt, like the author ran out of paper and said "well, that'll [...]

      3+ stars This is the first time I've read a Carolyn Jewel book. Although I liked that she wrote a complete story, my enjoyment of Word and Portia's romance was overpowered by annoyance over Eleanor. When a secondary character looms larger than the leads, I can't really grade it higher. A pity because there's some good writing there.

    5. May Mostly Romance says:

      เราชอบเรื่องนี้มากที่สุดในเรื่องสั้นสามเรื่องที่รวมอยู่ในหนังสือ Midnight Scandals นะคะ แต่นั่นก็ไม่ใช่เป็นความชื่นชมที่มากมายอะไร เพราะปกติเราไม่ชอบอ่านเรื่องสั้นเป็นทุน เราชอบความ [...]

      Found this read in Seven Wicked Nights anthology. Never read Carolyn Jewel before. Loved it! Not an original trope, but this second chance at renewing love despite deep losses, family interference/social circumstance, and mistakes of youth almost seemed to much to over come? Well, this author had me glued to my e-reader! This short story was packed with heartfelt yearningse raw passione struggle to put thoughts to words denied too long *sigh* This is exactly why I read romancer the *feelz*

      This would be about a 3.5 for me. The writing was good and the storyline was too (mind you, the sister in law annoyed the crap out of me- I think that she was supposed to!!!) I feel like there could have been more it felt a tiny bit lacklustre for me. The relationship between the H/h felt strained and stilted but still readable! Just not awesome for me.

      3.5 stars.Read in the anthology, Midnight Scandals. Review is in the following link along with the other two stories but beware, spoiler alert applies!/review/show/

      I read this as a part of the 7 Wicked Nights novella set that just came out on Sept. 16 and loved it. I'm a huge fan of romantic angst, and what's more heart-wrenching than lovers separated by circumstances beyond their control suddenly reunited after 10 years? High drama. Childhood lust and affection growing up. Heart-ripping love. READ IT. (review to follow on my blog)

    10. Kirsten Lenius says:

      This story was origionally part of an anthology of three stories set in the same location and revolving around a theme of scandal. In this, an Earl returns to his childhood area just before the young woman he lived dearly is to be married and finds the feelings between them remain.

      "Don't be unhappy. You know I can't bear it.""I want what slipped away before.""You have all of me. There's nothing more of me to give. You have everything."That did it for me. A Saturday morning in bed, languidly reading this lifelike, intense love story of what once was lost.

    12. Andrea (mrsaubergine) says:

      The end was a bit rushed, but other than that this was a gorgeous little story, full of UST and well-painted characters. I'm a little puzzled by the title, though - to my mind the *ahem* best bit happened during an afternoon hail storm ;)

    13. Seema says:

      It was short and an excuse to write two elaborate sexually explicit scenes in the pretext of a story. I don't know why I even bother to pick up these books.

      A short story but still a good read.
